Same as before. Is the 2nd season of the 1950's TV Smash Hit "The Adventures of Robin Hood" public domain? I would assume it is under the UK's 50 Year Copyright Terms for Television, but I need to know for sure. These copyright law things are dreadfully confusing for a person like me.

Under UK law (in schedule 1 of the act), all broadcasts made before 1 June 1957 are exempt from copyright. So all episodes of Robin Hood up to Season 2 Episode 35 (The Infidel) remain in the US public domain. The others are copyright due to GATT/URAA. All of season 3 and 4 and the last 4 episode of Season 2 are copyright.
